Why do we fail to keep our New Year resolutions? Not being able to change does not mean we lack the desire, willpower, motivation or even discipline. Using the Immunity-to-change approach developed by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey from Harvard University, we will examine how our current mindsets produce exactly those behaviors that prevent us from reaching our goals. In this practical “how to” workshop, you will learn the tools to master personal change without having to spending a fortune.
